I love a good cornerback in football. They often create the most exciting plays in the sport, including the pick-6. But I am so tired of the Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman. As an athlete, I always shut up and let my play do the talking. What's crazy is Sherman says he does that, then does the complete opposite. The guy is becoming a very good (if not great) NFL player on the field; Off the field, people are running away from him. This kind of routine spells a quick burnout.
